The one place I don't look

(1049)  Ami tomar sandhane adri kanane

I am in search of Thee on mountain and in forest;
I've gone looking, but You don't submit.
In holy sites, along the way, or in the wilderness,
Nowhere do I get a glimpse.

Careening on a swing between hope and hopelessness,
My mind has gone off racing in many a strange realm.
By cultivating knowledge in debates and conferences,
Not one thing have I accomplished.

On the ocean, in its deeps, in jungles, and in gardens,
In so many beautiful expanses of flowers...
My search I have widened to the wind and to the heavens,
But psyche's depths I don't seek within.
